Here's an ATC I recently made following a class at My Creative Classroom, taught by Catherine Matthews-Scanlon, called "The Ins and Outs of Artist Trading Cards". It uses a double image transfer.

So here's a few highlights from our trip. I will tell you that I like to take photos of architecture, art, and "things", while Howard likes photos of people. It's good we're together 'cause we end up with some really good pictures!
The BOMA is a buffet-style restaraunt with a carver who will carve steaks and pork, traditional African entrees, salads, breads, wonderful soups(!), and desserts, of course. These things are tiny and you certainly can take one of each..I did!

Felt, photos printed on fabric, coffee-stained lace, velvet ribbon, velvet leaves, silk flowers...all my favorite things! :D

It's 24" x 30" and sits in a black framed shadowbox. It's really gorgeous.
Here's what I did:
I printed the photo of my mother-in-law onto fabric treated with Bubble Jet Set 2000.
I created fabric paper (a la Beryl Taylor and Kelli Perkins) for the flowers and hearts.
Music paper was cut using the Xyron Creatopia CUTZ blades.
Thin craft metal was embossed using the Xyron Creatopia Patternz.
Thin craft metal was also cut using the CUTZ blades.
I used Fabric Adhesive and Permanent Adhesive refillz for the Creatopia.
Then there's machine stitching, beading, wire work and flowing fabric.

And while I'm on the subject of fabric, come join me in my first online class of the fall semester at My Creative Classroom, "Fabric: What, How, and WOW!" Come use that stash of fabric you have(or go shopping for one!) and let's create some cute and useful things with my favorite medium...fabric!
We'll make cards, photo frames, embellishments, art quilts, and even wearable fabric art! Click here to see full course description and to register for this class. Class starts Tuesday September 14th.
Remember, an online class means you can view materials 24/7 whenever YOU'RE ready...on YOU'RE schedule....and in your jammies! :D

All the ATC's should pay homage to Lisa turning 50 this year and journey, adventure, etc. I think these two companions look like they are off on an adventure...don't you think? Maybe they're singing, "On the Road Again"...?

I don't live in a rural area, mind you. I live on a cul-de-sac that is bumped up against other neighborhoods. There is a state park nearby, but these bears would have had to walk quite a few miles with traffic to get here!

YAY! Thanks, Lisa :D
Here's the ATC's I received in the swap:
Thanks, Ladies...your cards are wonderful!
